The Christmas City Express is back this year starting November 29 and the holiday tradition is a favorite for many families.

The ride is based on a story that Ken Buehler's father told him growing up.  It's about a young girl who goes to visit her grandparents for the holidays and the train gets caught in a storm.  Buehler, the Executive Director for the Lake Superior Railroad Museum, said everyone is safe, but they fear Christmas will be lost.  

"It's what the little girl and the conductor on the train do that saves Christmas for everyone," Buehler said.

This year they're giving out special Christmas City Express ornaments.  Everyone gets to take one home.

"We start off with carolers and live music, the story is performed by the two authors," Buehler said.  "Then of course there's the wonderful appearance of our dear friend [Santa] and then you take your train ride."

Santa stopped by GMN as well and said he's getting ready for Christmas and is very busy.

The Christmas City Express rides from November 29 to December 22.  You can get your tickets here.
